A 60-year-old man who died in a Staten Island crash early on Sunday morning had a “medical episode” behind the wheel, law enforcement sources said.

William McIver, 60, of Trantor Place in Elm Park lost control of his 2012 Honda Accord and slammed into two parked vehicles along Walker Street near Villa Avenue at 2:22 a.m. on Oct. 18.

The crash occurred just around the corner from McIver’s residence.

Officers from the 121st Precinct and EMS units responded to a 911 call about the collision. Upon arriving at the scene, they found McIver unconscious and unresponsive with head trauma.

Paramedics rushed him to Richmond University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Members of the NYPD Collision Investigation Squad determined that Walker was driving his Honda Accord eastbound on Walker Street when he suffered the unspecified medical event, and lost control of his vehicle.

No other people were injured as a result of the wreck. The investigation is ongoing.
